A powdered sugar mirage.

Local blogs thrilled last fall to the prospect of not one, but two crepe places opening across from each other on 14th Street. A few months later, one of them—Crepes on the Corner, in the former Garden District spot—thought better of the idea. The other, Point Chaud, has been “Coming Soon!” for six months now—which is why I thought this sign further down on 14th Street odd.

I haven’t been able to track down Point Chaud’s proprietors yet, but unless they’re opening two places at once, the former “crepe district” might have morphed back into a “crepe desert.” Will update as news warrants.
